Warranty and Roadside Assistance Coverage: What You Need to Know

Battery warranties for hybrid and electric vehicles:

Battery warranties for conventional hybrid cars, such as the Toyota Prius, and plug-in hybrids, such as the Chevrolet Volt, are straightforward: The primary purpose of a hybrid drive system is to reduce air pollution from the gasoline engine by cutting down on the amount of fuel the car burns. And so batteries and associated equipment are considered part of the overall emissions system. Under federal emissions rules, they must be warrantied for at least eight years or 100,000 miles.

California’s zero-emission vehicle regulations require even more coverage: Hybrids sold in the states covered by California’s mandate must carry a minimum 10-year/150,000-mile warranty on their battery systems. As of this date, the states are Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont, according to the California Air Resources Board.

How to Return a Car at the End of a Lease

Prepare for the Car Lease Inspection

Most manufacturers’ websites provide specific information about the end-of-lease process and a detailed definition of wear and tear, which also is called “wear and use.” Toyota Financial Services created a lease turn-in site so people can better understand what will happen and see what kinds of damage will incur a charge.

For example, inspectors for Toyota look for any dents or scratches that are bigger than an area that can be covered by a credit card. They don’t charge customers for wheel gouges smaller than an inch or normal tire wear.

Before the inspection, experts recommend removing all personal items and washing the vehicle. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars, but a detailing job might also be a good idea. It’s definitely to your advantage to present your car in the best light you can.
